Margaret Alice Terry was born on June 30, 1924, in Crystal River, FL, the daughter of John and Emma (Adkins) Terry. She was raised and received her education in Crystal River, where she played on the high school girls’ basketball team, and graduated from Crystal River High School in 1942. While growing up in Crystal River, Margaret grew to love swimming and diving, which she later passed on to her children. After completing her education, she worked at a dime store in Tampa, where she met a gentleman by the name of Michael Krizan. She was united in marriage to Michael Krizan on February 1, 1943, in Conway, SC. After his discharge from the service, they started their family on a small dairy farm in Donald, WI, where they lived until retiring in 1991. They moved to Boyd, WI and lived there until moving to Thorp, WI, in 1998. Shortly after her husband’s death on May 5, 2004, Margaret moved to Minnesota. She resided in Minnesota until the time of her death.

She will be dearly missed by her 12 children and their loved ones; 25 grandchildren; many great-grandchildren; nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.

She was preceded in death by her parents; her husband; Michael; one granddaughter, Kara Reynolds; one great-grandson, Adrian Krizan; one brother, Virgil Terry and one sister, Thelma Sassard.
